Shooting Reconstruction Courses - Summer 2008
« on: August 23, 2007, 10:37:28 AM »
We here in New Hampshire just finalized plans to bring Ed Hueske's Shooting Reconstruction Classes to Concord in the Summer of 2008.  We have set up both classes to be given back-to-back in June.  Great time to be in New England.

Come early and enjoy Motorcycle Week in Laconia (Wiers Beach).  The country's second largest bike rally behind Sturgis.  Only about 30 minutes from Concord.

Stay late and catch the NASCAR weekend at the Magic Mile in Loudon.  Only about 10 minutes from Concord.

Below is our training announcement that has already gone out to law enforcement in the region.  Follow the link at the end of the announcement to register or for more information (e.g. maps, hotel room blocks).


There will be two shooting reconstruction classes held at the Police Standards and Training Council in Concord, NH during the summer of 2008.  Renowned instructor Ed Hueske of Forensic Training & Consulting, LLC will teach Shooting Incident Reconstruction/Officer-Involved Shooting Investigation, June 16-20 and Advanced Shooting Reconstruction, June 23-25.

Shooting Incident Reconstruction/Officer-Involved Shooting Investigation is a 5-day school designed for officers, investigators, criminalists, firearms examiners, shooting review team members, internal affairs officers, police administrators, prosecutors and others with limited or no experience in the investigation of shooting incidents.  A review of basic firearms related topics will be presented to ensure all participants have a fundamental understanding of the principles necessary to conduct a proper investigation and/or reconstruction of a shooting incident.  Students are introduced to the tools, equipment and techniques that are used in shooting incident reconstruction. Techniques introduced during lectures are further developed through use of hands-on, classroom exercises.  Case studies and shooting range demonstrations add additional facets to the lecture topics.

Advanced Shooting Reconstruction is a 3-day advanced school that greatly complements the Shooting Incident Reconstruction school.  This course is designed for officers, investigators, criminalists, firearms examiners and others responsible for reconstructing shooting incidents and presenting them in court.  The class covers theories and principles of shooting incident reconstruction.  Students will have the opportunity to participate in both classroom and field/range exercises in the areas of:  Deflection of Bullets by Windshield Glass, Deflection of Bullets by Intermediary Targets, Impact Angle Determination for Ricochet Creases/Marks, Loss of Velocity Resulting from Intermediary Targets, Back Spatter of Blood, and Bullet Deflection Through Biological Tissue.  An extensive use of case studies from various shootings, including police shootings, will be used to supplement class discussions.

Due to high demand for this type of instruction in the New England Area, seating is limited and thus based on first come-first served basis.  Your seat will be reserved only upon receipt of payment in full no later than 60 days prior to start of class.  Cost is $595 for the 5-day school, $425 for the 3-day school or $900 for both.

Both of these classes are now over half full.  I am posting this notification to give AFTE members a heads-up as these classes will be advertised locally/regionally at the end of January.  If you are interested in either of these two Shooting Reconstruction courses, please register as soon as possible to hold a spot.

Also, each registrant will be entered to win an autographed copy of Ed Hueske’s new book Practical Analysis and Reconstruction of Shooting Incidents

Don't forget:  Laconia Bike Week (June 14th-22nd) and the Lenox Industrial Tools 300 Nextel Cup race (June 29th) serve as bookends for these two classes and an extended stay may suite the family well.
